If I could be apprenticed to anyone for one month, I would chose a NASA scientist because I have always been interested in space. It would be cool to learn about different questions people have about the unpredictability of space.

Miss Smith's Response: Have you been to the NASA website lately? Check out the page below about careers at NASA:
NASA Careers

There is plenty of cool stuff on this site! I also found a section that lists competitions for high school and college kids to give you an idea of ways to pursue this interest in the future: NASA opportunities

I would ask them: How do you test your space suits? What is the coolest thing you have ever done while working at NASA? Have you ever been in space? If so, what was it like?

I am going to do the Paper Engineering Challenge. What would you like to tackle for your final project?
I think that I might figure out how to use bases to fit them together and make a big shape that I can't find in the books.
Jan. 30: Today, I am going to find an origami project to start and continue making it next time.

April 3, 2009: I have finished three out of my six units needed to make my project.

Here they are!
